BuzzFeed for Android

By BuzzFeed Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Jan 30, 2015

BuzzFeed aggregates the latest viral content from across the Web, including blog posts, social media updates, videos, and images and presents them in a neat, ad-free, easy-to-scroll interface.

Pros

Makes content easy to digest: Because of its streamlined design, which presents headlines with images in an endlessly scrollable column, BuzzFeed makes it easy to devour content. There are no graphical distractions or ads.

Engaging, diverse content: From hot political news to social media lists to celebrity stuff, this app has it all. The headlines are eye-catching and arouse your curiosity, so that once you get used to this app, it's hard to put it down.

Bookmarks: If you create a BuzzFeed account, which you can do via the website or within the app, you can bookmark favorite content and return to it whenever you want through the left-hand sidebar.

Cons

Somewhat slow: The app needs a couple of seconds to load the headlines on startup or to display individual news items after you tap on them. Videos and list-based posts with plenty of photos load especially slowly.

No control over content: You can't customize content sources or block content, only browse it by different categories such as Life, Videos, or Best of 2014.

Bottom Line

Highlighting popular, trending content and making it easy to digest, BuzzFeed can satisfy your thirst for news and entertainment. Some content is rather frivolous, and there are plenty of silly celebrity articles. But among these, you'll discover interesting content that's a good read for when you're on the go or waiting for a plane or commuting to work. Whether you're 16 or 60, male or female, if you want some light reading that can arouse your curiosity and entertain you, this app is worth a try.
